Hauraton beat the competition T

he Community Sports Complex in Doncaster has been imaginatively planned and built to the highest

architectural standards. The development integrates sport and community facilities in a spectacular parkland setting. Doncaster Council is confident it will raise the town’s profile locally, regionally and nationally and help to significantly increase the numbers of local people watching and taking part in sport and other community activities. At the heart of the complex is a 15,100

capacity community stadium that incorporates an 800 square meter supporters bar, plus a 350 seat restaurant, a gymnasium and martial arts centre. The stadium is complemented by a separate floodlit six lane athletics track with two eight lane straights and its own covered 500 seat mini-stand. Other facilities include two floodlit reinforced and grass sports fields, 11 floodlit all weather pitches for five and seven a-side team games, a 10 acre public park and a 1000 space car park. The location of the Complex has meant particular attention was paid to rainwater

run-off and pipe depth issues in general. WSP Consulting Engineers were appointed for this part of the project. In discussion with main contractors Carillion, it was decided to use Hauraton injection moulded polypropylene RECYFIX®

250 metres of same channel was also used to drain walkways and around the five-a-side pitches. Hauraton also supplied the components for the athletic track water jump and the long jump sand trap. Being such a large environmentally sensitive area, the car park drainage system was a particularly tricky problem. Colin Taff, Hauraton applications engineer explains, “The larger sizes of Recyfix®

Super channel were

initially considered for the car park. However because of its position and relation to the nearby lake it was essential the depth of the system was kept to a minimum. It was realised there could only be one outlet at the end of each run, located to one side of the car park. Using RECYFIX®

SUPER would have entail SUPER drainage channels around

the perimeter of the stadium. 640 metres of channel was eventually specified, plus a further 340 metres of pitch-side drainage inside the stadium itself. RECYFIX®

SUPER was chosen

for being strong yet light enough to comply with manual lifting regulations. Subsequently,

Stroke unit goes to the toilet to help patient recovery

The stroke unit at Blackpool Victoria Hospital has become the first of its kind in the country to go to the toilet to help patient recovery. The specialist department within the Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has had a Closomat Palma Vita shower (wash & dry) toilet installed. The toilet, which looks like and can be used as a conventional WC, has integrated douching and drying, triggered when the flush mechanism is operated by pads on the side of the toilet, thus enabling patients to go to the loo without having to rely on nursing staff to help them. Closomat supplied and installed the new toilet and spent time training nursing staff so all understand how the toilet functions. The company is Britain’s leading manufacturer of disabled toilet solutions; its Palma Vita is the biggest-selling shower toilet in the country, delivering the most effective washing and drying performance. Unlike alternative shower toilets, the Closomat Palma Vita can be accessorised, initially or retrospectively, to accommodate changing needs. Closomat has more than 55 years’ experience in delivering personal hygiene solutions whether at home or away.

With an internal diameter of over 6m, this prestigious entrance system delivers clear and unhindered access for all patients, staff and visitors, even at the busiest times of the day. Additional access is offered via a set of swing doors situated to one side, powered by a pair of advanced TORMAX iMotion 1201 operators. The TORMAX Classic Large revolving door frame, that was installed at the Princess Alexandra hospital, features a strong central pillar constructed from steel for longevity and is suitable for door diameters from 3.6m up to an imposing 7.4m. For safety and rapid evacuation, the revolving door has an integral break-out system, allowing the leaves to be swung out of the way in an emergency. Delivering continuous, reliability even under the highest levels of pedestrian traffic, a TORMAX TRP door drive powers the weighty four-leaf door. The TRP operator can be neatly concealed in the floor or within the canopy of a revolving door.
